 Rise-Upward-by-Dale

 “The battle is now,” Sage spoke rapidly.  

“The way out is Through,” she said and in one swift movement, lifted the toaster onto her shoulder, rallied the other small creatures into extreme readiness, then looked with sharp evaluation at her friend who still knelt…living perhaps a bit too long there.

“The way out is through…and Up,” the flower seemed to add, stretching itself imperceptibly but enough for eyes to see.  Bloom’n blinked.  Once, then twice, then three times.  As if to clear her ears to hear the beautiful plant all the way down through to its roots and back up again, a journey which she was now convinced extended to the Heavens and the Wisest of Eternals.  As if in search of Galaxies, she studied each innocent yet ancient white-pink petal.  Then feeling her friend’s determined energy, Bloom’n looked up and met Sage’s eyes.

“We climb,”  Sage resolutely said.  Her eyes sparkled now.  “We cast off the skeletons of fear, remnants long overdue to be left behind.”

She extended her hand and firmly took Bloom’n’s hand.  

“We climb together,” Sage breathed.  “We climb all of us as one.  We climb now.”

Day 6 ~ a Midsummer Fairelands

The toaster bounded around Sage, popping out lightly browned bread slices everywhere. Sage smiled readily.  She seemed to find no surprise in witnessing toasters leaping about with great excitement.  Not so for Bloom’n.  Her brow scrunched with no small amount of confusion.  She found it nearly impossible to resist staring at the little metal creature who absentmindedly whipped its electric cord tail here and there.

“The Gem in the Lake,” the toaster sputtered in between fits of spitting out bread. “The Gem now warmly buttered!  Nice and warmly buttered in glow in the Lake!”

“Yes,” Sage replied.  “We must protect it.”

“Not a Gem,” the Giant Barbarian grunted.  He knelt in an instant and did so surprisingly rapidly, quietly.  Even elegantly, Bloom’n noted.  No one moved, except for Sage who turned her head in expectation toward the Giant.  And the Werewolf who bared its fangs, sending the petite faes around its jaw into sudden flight onto its ear tips.

“Not a Gem,” the Giant Barbarian repeated as he scooped up mounds of bread with one of his Giant Hands before shoveling the whole lot into his Giant Mouth.  Rabbits and mice and kittens scurried up his Giant Limbs in chase of a castaway crumb or two.

“What then,” Bloom’n asked with some annoyance.  “You move fast enough, elegantly enough.  Yet take a long time to explain!”

Sage raised an amused eyebrow and smiled more deeply under her breath at her somewhat exasperated friend.  Truth be told, Bloom’n’s own bravado squarely in the face of a Giant Barbarian (who, ironically, happened to have a rather square face, if overly large) surprised even Bloom’n herself.

She raised her hand in peace, having thought better of things, then whispered, “…apologies…”

“Indeed.  …accepted,” the Giant Barbarian rumbled while grinding bread between its teeth.  “Just know the Enemy seeks no apologies.  Worse yet, the Enemy offers none.  Not even when going directly after the Heart of all that is Beautiful.”  Casting its Giant Eyes on Bloom’n, the Giant Barbarian bent down even closer — casting his overly large square face before her like a giant square moon — and repeated with measured deliberateness, “The Heart.  In the Lake.”

“The Heart of Everything that is Beautiful,” Bloom’n whispered, nearly mouthed.  All at once, she understood.

“Enough explanation,” the Werewolf suddenly growled and most appropriately that he did.  Leave it to the Werewolf to gain the attention of all.

“We stand at the edge of the Midsummer of the Fairelands.  Enough talking!  Enough taking a knee!  Enough bread eating!  …”  His eyes narrowed, then glowed yellow-orange.  He cast his gaze now far off in the distance to the outermost edges of the Lake.  His sight keen, his hearing astute, his muscles torqued.  All of his senses heightened.

Then, returning to face Sage, Bloom’n, the Giant Barbarian, the small creatures and critters, even the now silent (and slightly trembling) toaster, he urged,

“Now is the MidSummer of these faire Fairelands.  Tally no more!  ‘Tis Time for the Deep Plunge… Time to protect The Heart of All that is Beautiful!”

Day 5 ~ Love in its Many Forms

Instinctively, Bloom’n shielded her eyes, yet she needn’t.  Her hand floated down from her face as she watched, wide-eyed with wonder, as a multitude of creatures emerged from the Light.

They had been crouched in shadow all this time, much like Bloom’n, she realized.  Removed from their shackles of fear and trepidation, disavowed of any notion of alone-ness by benefit of Sage’s brilliant surge of Light.

Never alone.  They seemed to fully realize it now.  Tiny creatures of all varieties – rabbits, mice, cats, petite fae and fairies — scurried forth.  Upright wolves and Giant Barbarians too.  Even what seemed to be a short-circuited toaster that skitted around wildly – could it be joyfully? – and all the while shooting out heaps of lightly-browned pieces of toast. 

Suddenly Sage and Bloom’n felt the press of these creatures on them, but mainly Sage, truth be told, who had long since reached out her hands of light in welcoming, with warm greetings extended equally with her smile and twinkling eyes. 

“No matter what form you take, what world you inhabit, your eyes always twinkle,” Bloom’n whispered in admiration, gazing between her friend and the growing throng, then added, “And I’m very grateful for it always … but most especially at times like this, when Giant Barbarians and Werewolves approach!”   She tightened her hands around her sword.

Sage laughed softly, “They are friends, dear Bloom’n.  Small and powerful.  Mighty and invisible.” 

“Remember this and remember it well:  true fellowship includes many and takes many forms.”

Day 4 ~ The Fairelands Ring

When you fall, the thundering winds drown out screams.

At least until the Fairelands ring.  Because when the Fairelands ring, the Fairelanders catch you.  And screams turn to tears of utter joy, tears brimming over with laughter.

chime bringgggg chim-a-chime ringgggg

Her body somehow rose in spite of the descent.  Gravity loosened its grip, somehow turning Bloom’n upright as the trees harrowingly rushed up past her.  Some unseen force somehow set Bloom’n on the ground, gently onto her feet.

chime bringgggg chim-a-chime ringgggg

“What the…,” Bloom’n gasped softly and surveyed her surroundings.  She flicked at terra firma under her sole as if she couldn’t believe what had just happened.

Evening greeted the land.  Then suddenly, starlight gave way to a larger brightness.  But only a moment, until all at once a somber dark fell over the land.  Almost as if it had chased Bloom’n straight down from the sky.

She crouched low behind a thicket.  The Fairelands indeed ring, she thought and had long heard the tales of such happenings, only now she witnessed it to be true.  Its valour chimes like the sharp edges of well-hewn swords that glitter like starlight in battle. She secured her own long blade in its sheath across her back and with both hands free, creates an imperceptible spyhole in the bush.

Watching quietly, studiously.  Then she sees it.  A small void grows a mere few feet ahead, blanketing out the many RFL of Hope.  The Faireland chimes less often suddenly, falling prey to a growing, deafening silence.

“There,” Sage whispers from inside the thicket.  Bloom’n startles, then says, “Your ability to blend in puts Chameleons to shame.”

“Concentrate,” Sage urges unblinkingly.  “There…”  She points with her voice and slowly begins to reveal herself.  A low glow outlines her form, even brightens in intensity.  Yet somehow the void resolves into a deeper shade of black…somehow snarling its intent.

“Here we go,” Bloom’n says in hushed tones while the land itself rumbles as if in protest to the growing darkness.  She slides her long blade out from its sheath and readies herself.  She feels Sage being to vibrate.

Her arms and hands spread outright, Sage whispers an ancient mantra of the Eternals.   Particles of searing light grow with Sage’s chant, building and swirling until all at once they fly off of Sage’s hands into the darkness and cracks the void apart, casting Light and Stars to dance all around the RFL vendors of Hope, ringing chimes throughout the Fairelands and leaving in the Light’s wake the powerful meaning behind the Eternal incantation:
